  • Isaac Newton's Theory

    Using empirical equations like this is a common trick in science; find a mathematical function that fits what you’ve observed, then use that as a clue to what’s happening behind your observations. Planck had taken this second step, and was looking for a theoretical derivation of what became Planck’s Law. This gave him a more fundamental understanding of the process of radiation. It is ironic, then, that Planck needed to quantise light to get his derivation to work. He had used Boltzmann’s equation to better understand the process but this understanding was that light came in quanta. Planck very definitely did not believe that light actually came in quanta. He considered it just a mathematical trick to make his equation work. Having worked with classical physics all his life, he was used to looking on light as a wave and using wave-based equations to accurately predict its behaviour. His ‘imaginary’ discrete energy packets had no place in this structure. Planck’s equation was not, at first, very popular. The rest of the physics community had the same problems with it as he did, the fact that he had to use a mathemagical trick to get…
